ASH FLANDERS IS NOTHING comes to the Brunswick Ballroom!

Melbourne’s hottest performance venue, the BRUNSWICK BALLROOM has hosted an incredible roll call of legendary musicians as well as a program of hilarious shows as part of this year’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival. As showcased in the Brunswick Ballroom Opening Gala in early March, we are also committed to putting cabaret front and centre on our stage.

Multi award-winning writer and performer Ash Flanders is no stranger to the BRUNSWICK BALLROOM having wowed audiences at the Opening Gala.

On July 1 & 8, Ash Flanders is Nothing will be taking us on a profoundly funny freewheeling time-traveling journey like no other, mixing storytelling with song and comedy with tragedy. Because when life is this gleefully punishing, the material just writes itself.

Ash Flanders says of his upcoming performances:

After burning the stage to the ground at the Opening Gala, the BRUNSWICK BALLROOM practically begged me to return with a new show, but when negotiations turned nasty they insisted on picking the title. So I guess I’ll see you at ‘Ash Flanders is Nothing’!

Melbourne’s most dynamic and exciting performance venue the BRUNSWICK BALLROOM offers patrons the chance to experience music, cabaret and comedy alongside wonderful food and wine. The cabaret line up at the venue is curated by theatrical producer Liza McLean from Tinderbox Productions.

McLean says of the Cabaret at the Ballroom program:

BRUNSWICK BALLROOM is a brilliant new venue in the heart of arguably one of Melbourne’s most thriving artistic communities, it is a pleasure to be curating the Cabaret and Theatre events at this magnificent venue and we hope audiences enjoy their first taste of what’s to come.

The BRUNSWICK BALLROOM is a fully accessible venue seating up to 300 people, combining the best of London’s legendary Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club and New York City institution Joe’s Pub with Melbourne’s own 1990’s icon, The Continental Café, bringing style back to Melbourne’s music scene.
